  1. Dear Stein family, one of the saddest things someone can experience is the death of a loved one. Did you know the Bible compares death to sleep? (Psalms 13:3) Just as a person who is asleep is unaware of what is happening around him, the dead are not conscious of anything. There is a promise of hope in the Bible. Our loving God has promised to awaken the dead, as if from sleep, and give them life again. Acts 24:15 says, “There is going to be a resurrection.” The bible offers comfort for those who are grieving and I hope this brings you comfort as well.

  2. My mom, Jan Miller spent some fun times with Judy and Joan going as they termed it; junking. One treasure mom came home with was drawers to Clark’s Spool Cotton. Stan made a piece of furniture the drawers fit in.
    My parents, both Jan and Clark Miller have passed on. I am sorry for your loss.
